Document Number: E7-9170
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-05-14

The matching program will be carried out to detect excessive or duplicate housing assistance as result of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. The matching program will be accomplished by comparing income, family size, family address, family identity, and benefit data for individuals participating in HUD's assisted housing programs and subsidized multifamily housing programs with rural housing assistance data maintained by RHS in its HS Multifamily Programs (MFH), Multifamily Information System (MFIS), Single Family Housing Programs (SFH), Dedicated Loan Origination and Servicing System (DLOS), and Guaranteed Loan System (GLS) databases within its system of records known as System of Records titled ``USDA/Rural Development,'' last published 63 FR 38546 (July 17, 1998). Specifically, HUD will compare the RHS identity, income, family size, and benefit data to tenant- reported data included in HUD's system of records known as: (1) the Tenant Housing Assistance and Contract Verification Data (HUD/H-11), last published at 62 FR 11909 (March 13, 1997); and (2) the Public and Indian Housing Information Center (HUD/PIH-4), last published at 67 FR 20986 (April 29, 2002). The tenant comparisons will identify, based on criteria established by HUD, tenants whose incomes, family size, address, or benefit levels, etc. that require further verification to determine if the tenants received excessive or duplicate rental assistance. The program also provides for the verification of the matching results and the initiation of appropriate administrative or legal actions.

Through this proposed rule, HUD submits, for public comment, specific standards governing a mortgagor's investment in property for which the mortgage is insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA).

Project-Based Voucher Rents for Units Receiving Low-Income Housing Tax Credits
Document Number: E7-8135
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-05-01
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
This proposed rule would revise the low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) rent provisions of HUD's final Project-Based Voucher (PBV) program rule, which was published on October 13, 2005, and took effect on November 14, 2005. The October 13, 2005, final rule capped the PBV rents at the LIHTC rent in buildings with LIHTC units, even in cases where HUD formerly permitted such units to receive the higher rents permitted under the PBV program. After giving the issue further consideration, HUD now proposes to revert to the regulations that address this specific issue and were in effect prior to issuance of the October 13, 2005, final rule. The regulations in effect prior to the October 13, 2005, final rule did not necessarily require public housing agencies (PHAs) to cap section 8 maximum rents at the tax credit rent. PHAs may not enter into assistance contracts until HUD or an independent entity approved by HUD has conducted the required subsidy layering review and determined that the assistance is in accordance with HUD requirements.
